Politicians in Less-Than-Flattering Photos
Life in the public eye isn't all it's cracked up to be, a fact that many politicians can attest to. Photographers and video cameras capture their every move, and once in a while, those cameras are bound to catch their subjects in an unflattering light sooner or later.

But this isn't an isolated incident as far as awkward photo-ops go — this sort of thing happens to politicians all the time. Unfortunately for them, it's also hilarious all the time.
Let’s take a much-needed break from hard campaign news and look at some photos featuring politicians at their most awkward.
